Dark Fortress Occult Master of SpaceBy Robby Rackleff
I am interested in the spirit of video games, their elemental power beyond conventions of gameplay. In this work I've created character-based mythologies, which draw from video game history, but also address the nature of gaming. In many reaches of the gamic multi-verse, we put aside our politics and our morality and we seek out death and destruction. We transform from street civilians to soldiers on the electronic landscape. Video games and the internet have allowed to us to create a myriad of personas and avatars for numerous worlds and environments whether they are social in nature or competitive or team-based gaming arenas. As we go further and further down this path we will inevitably confront the clashing of numerous identities within the shell of the self.
